I have to admit when I first came across this article, I thought the only reason I was going to post about it was for the sake of getting more traffic to this blog. I figured it’s about a divorce, and it was enough for me. But the more I started to think about it, This article talks a lot about people getting divorced later in life; in this case Bill and Melinda Gates, getting divorced at 65 and 56 respectively.

I don’t think that the story really told me anything that I didn’t already know about people getting divorced later in life.
